So can you guys please help me pick 2(or feel free to add) from this list before I take the dive? I am gonna order in 8 hours time! so hurry!

Ok, bear in mind that if I were to pick this game, I can only afford to get one in this case because its the most expensive one on the list.

So I am thinking of getting this instead. seing that its much cheaper, I could maybe pair it with DoA in my order. Which so far to me seems like better value because this and DoA seems pretty hot at the momment. Plus it kinda elimenates the itch of a dungeon crawl game. unless runebound is really that good.

My only gripes with this one so far is that if I really like it, I will eventually spend as much on expansion which eventually= to price of runebound. But with runebound I get more stuffs and a big nice board to boot.

I know this game isnt highly favorable on bgg. But I have read Shannons review on rpg.net and I found most of his reviews highly respectable. Plus the sci-fi theme is incredibly appealing to me. This game however is also affordable and can be combined with any of the above except runebound.

I vote for this one. It's inexpensive, the quality is great, and it's great fun for two players. Also girlfriend/wife friendly.

Ok, it's probably completely unfair to suggest this, since it can end up costing buckets to really get into. But given your (and your partner's) love of LotR and your interest in some hex wargames, it's at least worth a look. You could probably buy a bunch of common figures from a site for $0.50-$1.00 (US) apiece, plus a starter pack and a few uncommon heroes, and be able to field a decent battle for not TOO much money. I've played a few rounds of this recently and enjoyed it quite a lot, nearly as much as M44. And it really can look quite impressive when laid out on a gaming table!

If you're considering Hera & Zeus and/or Lost Cities, definitely consider this too. Lots of tough decisions to make. Not much screw-your-opponent, which plays well with my wife, at least.
